I bought a damaged LCD monitor off ebay. I haven't received it yet, but you can see a picture here. It appears that it has sustained some impact that destroyed some of the transistors or something like that. That is fine with me for the usage I envision, however, I'd like to know if this damage will pose any fire or health hazards and , assuming no more physical shocks to the monitor, is bound to get worse with time.
Are there free alternatives to Maxivista software for using laptop as a second monitor? [more inside]
Can I get my second monitor to emulate a higher resolution? I have an ATI Radeon video card using two monitors. The second monitor only goes up to 800X600 (an old LCD). However, Microsoft Flight Simulator X only allows the resolution of a display to be set to as low as 1024X768. I'd like the second monitor to think it is at that resolution and display a portion of the 1024X768 on its available area of 800X600. i don't care if the rest is not visible. Any ideas? Thanks!
